CentOS Stream is a release from the CentOS Project. It’s an effort, along with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) engineering team, to increase transparency and collaboration around the RHEL development process.
Think of CentOS Stream as a rolling pre-release of RHEL. Updates will go into CentOS Stream that are intended to be in the next minor release of RHEL. So if you’re developing and testing against CentOS Stream, you’ll be ready for the next RHEL on day one.
If you’re developing on top of CentOS Stream, consider participating in one of the Special Interest Groups (SIGs), which provide packages for deployment on CentOS Linux, and on CentOS Stream. SIGs are able to build packages in our Community Build System (CBS) and test them against both CentOS Linux (7 and 8) and CentOS Stream in our CI infrastructure.
